By Abhijoy Sarkar | Parachute-Fans | 9 Sep 2019

Sup folks! With this update, we will be completely upto speed with the latest in the Parachuteverse. Also this is a biggie. Parachuters from across the globe shared a slice of their life with us. This is going to be a fun ride. Buckle up! Here’s your week at Parachute (30 Aug - 5 Sep'19):


This week’s 20k PAR winner from the Big Brother contest was BlackBullShark for correctly picking Michie as Head of Household. Congrats mate! And a belated Happy Birthday to Rene. Hope you had a blast. The tip storm you started in Wysker was definitely a thing to see. Unique hosted a trivia in TTR based on Maths and had a 25k PAR pool. Not bad at all. After a lot of deliberation, MUXE was delisted from ParJar. Read Cap’s article to know why. If you hold MUXE in your ParJar, worry not. Your balance is intact and it can still be withdrawn. Delisting means it cannot be tipped or deposited anymore. Benjamin’s Analysis Reports are a reader's delight. This week, the 2nd edition of The Parachute Post was released. Thanks for all the effort you put into these, mate. Victor hosted a trivia in TTR for 25k PAR in prizes. 15 questions worth 1.7k PAR each. Saweet! As you already know, the #PAR4PAR staking contest is now in stage 2. Click here to read details about it.
